My Amazon EC2 instance has failed the system reachability status check.

If a system reachability status check has failed for your instance, you can try one or more of the following actions:

  • For an instance using an Amazon EBS-backed AMI, stop and restart the instance. If the instance seems to be stuck in the stopping state, see Troubleshooting Stopping Your Instance.
  • For an instance using an instance-store backed AMI, terminate the instance and launch a replacement.
  • Wait for Amazon EC2 to resolve the issue. Allow at least 20 minutes.
  • Open a Support case by clicking the Create Support Case button on the Status Checks tab for the instance in the Amazon EC2 console.
